Currently, Xen has the etherboot rom for hvm guests,
which only supports rtl8139 nic device model.
This patch is intended to support etherboot for e100 nic by:
- adding etherboot rom for e100 nic (provided by rom-o-matic.net).
- making hvmloader scan pci devices, find the first nic device
and load the corresponding etherboot rom.

Thanks.  We'd prefer not to include a binary where we don't have the
source code in the tree and also don't have any of the scripts which
generate the rom from the upstream.

So I will look into alternative ways of providing a suitable e100


Do you mean you are going to take the etherboot source code
in xen's tree and generate rtl8139/e100 roms at compile time,
or thinking any other way?
